Reed’s undefeated season came to an end last week at the Rail City Classic, but the Raiders still had a successful tournament after finishing 3-1.
The boys won their 10 straight game when they opened the tourney last Wednesday with a 73-31 win over Yerington, but the streak came to an end the next day. After trailing by nine at the end of three quarters, the Raiders battled back in the fourth before ultimately falling 60-59 to Carlmont out of Belmont, Calif.
Reed would end up rebounding just fine from the loss and knocked off Hug 64-28 on Friday and Anticoch, Calif. 70-46 Saturday.
The Raiders (12-1) will get some time off now before their next contest Jan. 8 at Bishop Manogue.
The Spanish Springs boys spent part of their holiday break in Southern California to take part in the Torrey Pines Under Armour Classic.

Cordel Stinson scored 23 points and Panfili added 14 the next day as the Cougs got back on track with a 64-51 win over Bakersfield, Calif. The boys made it two straight on Friday with a gritty overtime win over Brighton (Salt Lake City, UT.), 64-62. Panfili led both teams with 20 points, while Stinson and Leo Grass each added 15.
